Im a graduate of Brown University and now working as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher in New York City. Originally preparing to get a masters in Public Health, I decided to change pace and pursue dance while continuing to study public health, intersecting my two passions in my senior capstone. Working as a street styles choreographer Ive been able to work on my teaching through a unique lens, understanding the learning process through a kinetic form and applying that to my work as an academic tutor and mentor.
As the Head Teaching Assistant in the School of Public Health at Brown University, I had the opportunity to organize a review/discussion curriculum in tandem with the professor for 172 undergraduate students. I co-led weekly discussion sessions, organized monthly exam reviews for all students in the course, graded student assignments, and held private one-on-one review sessions for students needing extra assistance. I improved the program by creating a culture where TAs felt comfortable providing one-on-one assistance to their students while supporting them during this process. In addition, as a teacher I consistently request feedback from my students and my peers. I follow up with my students to ensure any requested feedback has been integrated into my teaching style. Through this experience, I developed the necessary skills to tutor effectively, learning to be flexible with my delivery of information to address the needs of the specific students I am working with.
